[Verse 1]

     G             Em         C        G
Come gather 'round people wherever you roam
      G            Em      C              D
And admit that the waters around you have grown
      G            Em             C               G
And accept it that soon you'll be drenched to the bone
        G       Am           D
If your time to you is worth savin'
        D            Cadd9              G/B         D/A
So you better start swimming or you'll sink like a stone
        G           C       D  G
For the times, they are a-chang - in'


[Verse 2]

       G          Em          C                    G
Come writers and critics who prophecise with your pen
      G             Em         C               D
And keep your eyes wide the chance won't come again
       G             Em             C              G
And don't speak too soon for the wheel's still in spin
            G           Am            D
And there's no tellin' who that it's namin'
           D       Cadd9     G/B     D/A
For the loser now will be later to win
          G        C    D G
For the times they are a-chang-in'


[Verse 3]

     G             Em         C        G
Come senators, congressmen please heed the call
      G            Em      C              D
Don't stand in the doorway, don't block up the hall
      G            Em             C               G
For he that gets hurt will be he who has stalled
        G       Am           D
There's a battle outside and it's ragin'
        D            Cadd9              G/B         D/A
It'll soon shake your windows and rattle your walls
        G          C       D  G
For the times they are a-changin'


[Verse 4]

     G             Em         C        G
Come mothers and fathers throughout the land
      G            Em      C              D
And don't criticize what you don't understand
      G            Em             C               G
Your sons and your daughters are beyond your command
        G       Am           D
Your old road is rapidly agin'
        D            Cadd9              G/B         D/A
Please get out of the new one if you can't lend a hand
        G          C       D  G
For the times they are a-changin'


[Verse 5]

     G             Em         C        G
The line it is drawn the curse it is cast
      G       Em      C          D
The slow one now will later be fast
      G        Em        C        G
As the present now will later be past
        G       Am      D
The order is rapidly fadin'
        D         Cadd9     G/B      D/A
And the first one now will later be last
        G          C       D  G
For the times they are a-changin'
